On Joy Reid's show, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley says that although the Buzzfeed allegation that President Trump ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russian collusion has been debunked by the Mueller investigation: "what we are hearing in this does not mean that we know that there won't in the future be corroborated evidence of Donald Trump having knowledge of and in some way being part of what could be, could be -- and I'm speculating -- could be a conspiracy to suborn perjury. That is a possibility. We don't know."
Are we due for the greatest political disappointment of our era? Well, according to ABC News Chief White House Correspondent, Jonathan Karl, that just might be what will happen. Despite joyous liberal anticipation of a bombshell report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Karl revealed that his sources close to the investigation have reported to him that the report is "certain to be anti-climactic."
On CBS’s Thursday night broadcast of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert aired a cartoon Christmas special titled "A Very Special Counsel Christmas" in which Donald Trump, ICE agents, and a pro-Confederate criminal Santa team up to steal presents from all the world’s small children and enslave the North Pole’s elves to build a wall on America’s southern border. At the end of the day, Kris Kringle (as the real Santa Claus) and Robert Mueller are forced to team up to save Christmas by putting Trump in jail after finding proof of Russian collusion.
Longtime liberal actor Robert de Niro has hurled expletives and insults against President Trump and played Special Counsel Robert Mueller on NBC’s Saturday Night Live since April 14, so he’s obviously not a fan. So Monday afternoon on CNN International, De Niro insisted that he’s not lowering our discourse, lashed out at the “nightmare” Trump presidency as “one of the worst that I have ever seen,” and even suggested that Brexit be overturned.
As the end of 2018 draws near, several companies and websites that provide dictionaries are using the occasion to declare their choices for “Word of the Year.” When announcing Merriam-Webster’s selection on Monday, Time listed a number of negative events that took place over the past 12 months as why the dictionary company chose “justice” as its pick for 2018.
On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
Michael Isikoff, Chief Investigative Correpondent of Yahoo News, is unable to find any real proof of Trump-Russia collusion based on the latest court filings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller when he appeared on CNN's December 8 Smerconish show. But first, Isikoff agreed with Smerconish on the appearance of Democratic hypocrisy on impeaching over sex. Rep. Jerrold Nadler "eloquently" argued Clinton shouldn't be impeached for lying to conceal an affair with an intern. So how is Nadler going to impeach using sketchy witnesses like Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti?
In what was supposedly a “comedy” act to close out the latest episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, the female cast members got together to sing their rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. But the person they had their eye on was Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or, at least a report that would put Trump in jail. Because, according to the SNL cast, “the only other option is a coup. Straight Africa.”
During an interview with Democratic Congresswoman Primila Jayapal on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle suggested Democrats should shut down the government to force Republicans to back legislation protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was quite a reversal for Ruhle, who just a few months earlier hammered President Trump for threatening a shutdown if border security legislation wasn’t passed by Congress.
As of 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, CNN has not spent a second of airtime on Monday night’s revelation that Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis now admits to lying on-air to Anderson Cooper when he denied being a key source for a massively-hyped news item CNN broke last month.
At this unique moment in American history, liberals and conservatives have something in common: an abhorrence of government prosecutors run amok. Republicans are livid at the federal fishing expedition known as the Mueller investigation. Bit players have been dragooned into an endlessly politicized probe. The media has taken sides; nonstop leaks have tainted the process.
On Tuesday evening and following a whirlwind of a news day, Omarosa dropped a massive nothingburger while appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball. Host Chris Matthews peppered her with questions, in an attempt to have her get to the bottom of whether or not Trump is guilty in the eyes of the liberal media. Spoiler alert: he is.
